It seems that it wasn't so long ago that the Company celebrated its quarter of a century jubilee, but here they are – new important dates: 30 years of BIG Filter's successful activities in the Russian and global market of motor-car components and 75th birthday of its founder and president – Boris N. Beylin.
The event was celebrated by more than 300 people, including business partners, the birthday man's friends and relatives who had arrived from various countries and regions of Russia, and, of course, by BIG team in the splendid interior of B.N. Yeltsin Presidential Library located in the landmark building of the Most Holy Synod.
Apart from sincere greetings and wishes a lot of time was dedicated to mutual reminiscence about events, which had united the Company and its business partners over years and turned them into true companions and kindred spirits.
Atmosphere of the celebration was made special by touching ballads of a famous Soviet and Russian poet, one of the founders of bard song genre in Russia – Alexander Gorodnitsky; as well as by a wonderful film about a unique life philosophy of the permanent president of BIG Filter Company – Boris Beylin, who had brought the Company to success "thanks to and in defiance of".
In spite of its age, which is quite considerable for a post-Soviet business formation, BIG Filter keeps pursuing the course of active development and transformation with the aim of strengthening its position both in the internal and international markets. Thus just last year a few successful projects were realized, including:
• Quality Management System certification in compliance with the new IATF16949 standard, which had been developed on the basis of ISO/TS 16949 experience;
• start of serial supplies of BIG Filter branded products to the European market;
• reform of the Company price policy for the Independent Aftermarket of Russia in order to provide uniform prices for BIG Filter products on the whole territory of the Russian Federation.
Finishing the regular 4-year planning cycle this year the Company has already started preparing a new Strategic Plan for the 2020-2024 period, which will include not only ambitious aims and tasks, but also carefully elaborated ways of their fulfillment.
Once again we thank all our customers, partners and kindred spirits for the appreciation of our products and for the long-standing successful cooperation. After all, without your support there would have been no celebration!
